Members of the community came together to help with Walden's Big Clean Up Day ahead of businesses reopening as Covid restrictions eased.
Louise Scutt-Richter, Saffron Walden BID Manager said: "A huge ‘thank you’ from the SWBID team to everyone who came down to the town centre to help.
"Over 50 people helped through the day to litter pick, weed, scrub and clean.
"Residents, county and town councillors, town council officers, and many business owners as well as Waitrose volunteers all came out to get the town ready for the businesses reopening this week.
"We were delighted to see such strong support in the community for our local businesses."
